I know no object of love that give such substantial and unfailing returns as books and a garden.

"What a blessing it is to love books. Everybody must love something, and I know no object of love that give such substantial and unfailing returns as books and a garden".
(Elizabeth von Arnim)
I woke up to a misty, grey morning: but, nevertheless, with a certainty. Albeit two. First, that soon it will be spring. Spring can’t fail us, spring never deceives us. Second, that I have a new book waiting for me, by Elizabeth von Arnim: the woman I’d love to spend an afternoon with, in her german garden, in far away Pomerania, far away in time too, early 1900. But, yes, books do that magic. Expecially in spring.

Yes, I write. Yes, I believe in the magic of words. That’s why you’ll find me here, every Friday: Lisa “globish”!

I believe in the magic of words, and I believe Piazza Unità in Trieste, where I was born, is the most romantic square in the world. (And yes, it’s in Italy, proudly facing the sea). I love roses in every form. And, of course, I do love my blog, expecially now that I can carry it around on my iPhone.
